Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, is causing concern in the country due to the lack of snow cover on it this winter, which a recent scientific study has attributed to global warming.

The 3,776-metre (12,388 feet)-high mountain, whose distinctive snow-capped peak is visible on clear days from some parts of Tokyo, located about 100 kilometers (62 miles) away, has been receiving snowfall well below normal for the season. EFE-EPA
